Celebrities got into the spooky spirit last night and we were bowled over by some of their costumes. Obviously, Hollywood actors and Grammy winners have plenty of cash to splash out on a costume. Unlike us normal folk who have to settle for a €2 pair of cat ears. 

Their Halloween costumes are out of this world. Adele always gets it right and her 2019 costume is one of our favourites by far.

Adele is the queen of Halloween. The Set Fire To The Rain singer has dressed up as the legendary George Michael, Dolly Parton, June Carter Cash, Rose from Titanic and even Stanley Ipkiss from The Mask in previous years.

The expectations were high for this year’s costume but the singer didn’t disappoint.

Adele dressed up as one of the most iconic Disney villains this year and we’re obsessed with her costume.

The Hello songstress rocked a Captain Hook costume and she’s never looked better.

Adele donned a red animal print suit, gold hoops and a huge hat and a sparkly hook because she is the glamour queen.

The 31-year-old celebrated Halloween with Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren. The friends attended a Hollywood party last night and it’s safe to say Adele had the best costume.

The singer recently attended Drake’s birthday party and commented on her weight loss. She joked, “I used to cry but now I sweat.”

Regardless of what the weighing scales says, Adele always looks phenomenal.

We have always envied Adele’s style. The Chasing Pavements singer always oozes class and glamour and her latest look is no different. 

The songstress attended Drake’s 33rd birthday party on Wednesday night and wore the most beautiful gown.

Adele arrived at the party in a strapless black, velvet dress that probably cost more than our car.

Fans couldn’t help but notice that the Someone Like You singer has lost quite a lot of weight in recent months and the singer even commented on her body transformation herself.

The Grammy winner said she wanted to spend the year focusing on herself.

Following her divorce from Simon Konecki, the Set Fire To The Rain singer vowed to learn how to fully love herself.

She said, "For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once… Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough."

Rumour has it, the singer has been working on new music and we couldn’t be more excited for it.

Former One Direction bandmember Niall Horan is gearing up to release his sophomore album (just like Harry…) and revealed on Twitter how excited he is for his fans to finally hear it.

The 25-year-old will be releasing the follow up to 2017's Flicker, and shared his readiness to have it in the hands of his fanbase;

“I’m laying here listening to songs from my new record and I’m so excited to get going,” he shared. “Can’t wait for you to hear the fun I’ve been having over the last year.”

He added that the experience of writing on the road gave him an insight into “what kinds of things get people dancing, what makes them sad and everything inbetween.

“So I’ve observed and I’m ready,” the Slow Hands singer said..

Niall also took the time to thank fans for supporting his debut solo release, explaining how the music “reached a lot more people than I thought it would… as it’s very different to what’s out there”, adding: “Thank you so much for making my dreams come true and really taking it on board.”

The star is set to show his softer side with an Adele-style ballad inspired by a recent break-up set to be released soon.

Horan hosted an intimate album playback session at the Electric Room in London last night, where he played four tracks from his second LP.

Put A Little Love On Me, was co-written by respected songwriter Greg Kurstin, who has worked with the likes of Paul McCartney and Adele, so it’s safe to say the tune will most likely be great.

Niall described the tear-jerker ballad as his "favourite song he’s ever written", and revealed he wrote it after going through a recent break-up. "It was very real to go through and sit at the piano to write it and speak it," the singer explained.

His only request to Greg was; "I want you to Adele the s**t out of this ballad." I mean…fair. Niall was more recently linked to actress Hailee Steinfeld, who he split from in December of last year.

His upcoming single, Nice To Meet Ya, is a big anthem undoubtedly destined to become a hit. The singer described wanting to "make the craziest song we can make".

It's expected to drop later this month, so gear yourselves up ladies and gents.

Adele has uploaded a hilarious meme to her Instagram after news recently broke about her divorce from Simon Koneki.

The musical sensation has been silent on social media since April 11, when the couple announced their split after three years of marriage.

You're about to have serious FOMO, that's for sure. Why? Jay-Z and Beyoncé's annual Oscars after-party, that's why. Unforch, social media was banned at the bash so there ain't many public photos.

The bash is as exclusive and private as you may imagine, with stars such as Adele, Rihanna, Drake, Spike Lee, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans and Natalie Portman showing their faces.

Newly engaged Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry arrived as an item, as well as power couupe J-Lo and Alex Rodriguez and social media legends Chrissy Teigen and her husband John.

According to an insider at E! News; "The party was completely A-list. Guests began arriving around midnight and they didn't leave until about 5 a.m. and later. It was the party everyone wanted to be at it seems." 

No surprises there. Tell us more about Katy and Orlando, that's what we want to know;

"Katy and Orlando were the life of the party. Everyone was approaching them to say congrats and they were both 'cheers'-ing their drinks with anyone and everyone," the source shared.

"Katy looked amazing in a silver gown and Orlando was by her side the entire night. Jay-Z and Beyoncé seemed happy to see them and the four of them were talking for several moments."

 "The music was mainly hip-hop songs mixed with classics like Beyoncé's top hits, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande," the source shared.  YAS to Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and 7 RIngs blaring. Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne was apparently flowing too.

 "Everyone was on the dance floor dancing having a great time." Jamie Foxx was spotted getting the crowd hyped when he yelled the lyrics of rap songs in the background, and Kelly Rowland caught up with Queen Bey.

Beyoncé and her Destiny's Child sister hit the dance floor together and were having a great time. "They both were drinking and smiling. Beyoncé seemed relaxed like she felt she could let loose for a night."

Of course, we CANNOT forget about Bad Gal RiRi, the woman who can upstage literally anyone's outfit.

Rihanna showed up looking stunning in a leopard mini-dress, and had to be in the same room as Drake which must have been hella awkward. She probably curved so many former romantic prospects.

Us Weekly, wrote that the soirée went down at the Chateau Marmont garage, where guests were reportedly told to honour a no-phone policy. Daniel Humm and Eleven Madison Park did the lush catering.

“They wanted the environment to feel safe for everyone, so everyone could actually just be themselves and let loose," according to a source. Naturally, press weren't allowed inside.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Diddy, Serena Williams, Regina King, Michael B Jordan, Tiffany Haddish, Aziz Ansari, Oscar winner Olivia Colman and every other A-lister you can name were also there. Imagine being in that room…

RiRi left the party in slippers, because of course she did. A whole mood. In conclusion, everyone wanted to be there and no photos of Beyoncé's outfit have appeared, but you can bet your bottom dollar she stole the show.

Jameela Jamil doesn't hold anything back when it comes to body-shaming, and abuse in the entertainment industry.

She has become renowned for her comments blasting the Kardashians for endorsing weight-loss products, and also is on a campaign attempting to ban airbrushing and photoshop.

The Good Place actress has now opened up about her feelings regarding designer Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away yesterday aged 85.

Jamil re-tweeted an article entitled Stop Mourning Oppressors: Anti-Condolences for Karl Lagerfeld by Lara Witt, expressing disdain for those who are sharing grief about the controversial designer.

"I’m glad somebody said it. Even if it is a little soon. A ruthless, fat-phobic misogynist shouldn’t be posted all over the internet as a saint gone-too-soon. Talented for sure, but not the best person," she wrote.

Chanel confirmed yesterday that the iconic German visionary had died. Lagerfeld worked as creative director of Fendi, Chanel and K by Karl Lagerfeld simultaneously until his death.

Lagerfeld was renowned globally for his acerbic wit, though some of his comments embroiled him in controversies, particularly those involving weight loss and #MeToo.

He was known for calling Adele "a little too fat", and said of Pippa Middleton; “I don’t like the sister’s face. She should only show her back.” Wow…

Of Princess Diana, he said in a 2006 interview; “She was pretty and she was sweet, but she was stupid." As if that wasn't bad enough, he then got political. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Karl Lagerfeld (@karlagerfeld) on

Two years ago on a French TV show, he blamed German Chancellor Angela Merkel for the migrant crisis and invoked the Holocaust.

The Guardian wrote that he quoted; “One cannot – even if there are decades between them – kill millions of Jews so you can bring millions of their worst enemies in their place.” Oh God…

He then targeted legendary actress Meryl Streep, claiming she had specially ordered a Chanel dress to wear to the Oscars, but changed her mind when a different designer offered her a dress. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dentro do cinema (@dentrodocinema) on

Meryl completely disputes this, and Chanel doesn’t pay actresses to wear their fashions on the red carpet, despite the fact that many designers in the industry do.

When he was asked about Streep, he said, “A genius actress, but cheapness also, no?” Meryl responded, saying; "Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication. 

"That publication printed this defamation, unchecked." Don't hold back, gal.

Lagerfeld also told a German magazine that he will only hire thin models for his runway shows because “no one wants to see curvy women”.

When asked to comment on model victims of sexual harassment, said: “If you don’t want your pants pulled about, don’t become a model! Join a nunnery." Oh Karl…

Jameela Jamil's reponse to his death has caused some social media users to claim she has a lack of respect for the dead and condemned him too quickly.

“Seriously let’s have some respect for his death keep your opinion at least respectful at this time,” wrote one person. Others showed their support for the actress;

Others claim that she dragged his name too soon, and his family are only beginning to mourn;

“Regardless if your opinion is right or wrong, a lot of people seem to have liked and respected this person. Do you think it would be more respectful to voice your opinion after hes been mourned by friends and family?” wrote another user.

Jamil responded with another, succinct tweet;

She wrote, "Gonna write an essay about this instead of trying to put my thoughts on this into a tweet. How problematic the industry has been for girls is too complex for this."

We look forward to reading this essay, as the issue is definitely a complicated one. Do you agree with Jameela, or think it was too soon?

We can all admit we’ve all had that moment where we had a good, long cry whilst listening to one of Adele’s songs. There have been many rainy mornings where we dramatically wept to Someone Like You, and plenty of nights out where we sang Hello into a wine bottle. Adele’s music has been the soundtrack to many women’s lives for years.

We have been huge fans of the Grammy winner since she released her first album 19 all the way back in 2008.

It’s been a decade since the Water Under The Bridge singer stormed the charts with her first album, but there’s no stopping Adele just yet.

Rumour has it the singer is set to release a brand new album in 2019.

 

According to reports, the Chasing Pavements songstress has been in talks with Sony about working on a new album.

It is understood that Adele is hoping to head to the studio later this summer, where she will write a wave of chart-topping hits.

 

A source shared: “She’s back in the UK and intends to write here. A number of studio musicians have been approached to work with her and she’s already penned some of the songs.”

The new album is rumoured to be released next Christmas. We are beyond excited. If anyone needs us we’ll be singing along to Make You Feel My Love for the foreseeable future.

Adele celebrated her 30th birthday over the weekend and the Hello singer certainly went all out to mark the next chapter of her life.

Adele was joined by her nearest and dearest, as well as a host of celebrity friends including Aaron Paul, Zane Lowe, Mark Ronson, Alan Carr and Sam Taylor-Johnson.

She opened up about the milestone on Instagram, “Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far.”

 

A post shared by Mark Ronson (@iammarkronson) on

'Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me.'

'My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie,” she continued.

The Water Under The Bridge singer gushed about her party, “Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple pics. I’m absolutely f**ked, not sure I’ll make it out the house again!,” she joked.

She also praised Childish Gambino, who dropped the video for his song This Is America yesterday, “Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness on so many platforms. I adore you x.”

It's been almost ten years since Adele got her big break with debut album, 19 and since then, the singer-songwriter has gone from strength to strength.

Every album has shot straight to the top of the charts and the now 29-year-old has travelled the globe, bringing live performance to her fans across the world.

Adele has never been shy about her feelings around touring.

Speaking to the New Zealand Herald earlier this year, the mother-of-one said:

“Touring isn’t something I’m good at… applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don’t know if I will ever tour again."

"The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag,” she added. 

And it now looks as though Adele os finally ready to leave the stage behind for good. Preferring to leave on a high, the singer has previously described this tour as her “greatest accomplishment in [her] career”, adding, “It's changed my life.”

Kicking off the final shows of her current world tour at London's Wembley Stadium on Wednesday night, Adele reportedly slipped hand written notes into some of the tour programs.

One fan took to Instagram to share the note in full:

 

Photo by Traci @tracii_m Translation by @wannabeadkins Adele @Adele's letter from her your book! "So this is it after 15 months on the road and 18 months of 25 we are at the end. We have taken this tour across uk+ Ireland, throughout Europe, all over America and I finally got to go to Australia and New Zealand too. Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn't suit me particularly well. I'm a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I'm dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I've done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done. I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artist have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don't know if I'll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home. Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life. Love you. Goodnight for now" Adele #Adele #Adelettes #AdeleLive2017

Last night was just the first of Adele's Wembley performances so it is still unclear as to whether she will make a formal announcement following the final show.

We also don't know what this means for the future of Adele's music career. Could 25 be the last album from the London songstress?

We certainly hope not.

Adele made it her mission last night to help the residents of the horrific Grenfell Tower fire, which has so far claimed the lives of 12 people, with many more still missing.

The Grammy Award winning star made an appearance at the 27-storey tower block last night.

The star was there with her husband Simon Konecki, comforting and hugging those who needed help.

'Adele was going around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them,' an Adele fan account wrote on Twitter.

Her appearance came less than 24 hours after a blaze destroyed the building.

Drake was the big winner at the 2017 Billboard Music awards in Las Vegas last night.

The Canadian star took home an incredible 13 trophies, setting a new record for the most awards claimed by one artist. The record was previously held by Adele who went home with 12 prizes in 2012.

The rapper walked away with a host of coveted titles including, Best Artist, Best Male Artist and Best Rapper.

The top artist award was presented to the One Dance singer by Prince Michael Jackson, the son of the late singer.

Upon accepting the award, Drake tipped his hat to Adele saying, "I just want to say hold tight Adele because when a new thing drops you will crawl your way back to get the record back."

Other highlights of the night included a live performance from Cher who took to the stage in a diamond clad ensemble for an energetic rendition of hit singles Believe and If I Could Turn Back Time.  

Another throwback moment saw Celine Dion give a powerful performance of her classic hit My Heart Will Go On which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. (Yes, that also means it’s been 20 years since Jack and Rose broke our hearts, and we’re still not over it.)

There’s was a moment of silence for Audioslave and Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who sadly passed away last week at the age of 52.

Miley Cyrus, John Legend, The Chainsmokers and Lorde also performed on the night.
